The Forest Of The Clouds Desktop

Winter is nearly over. If you’re not a fan of spring, you can keep the icy mornings alive with this linux desktop. It’s crisp, refreshing and easy to set up. Here’s how to replicate the look.


The Abstract Desktop

GiacomoLawrance’s desktop is a lot of fun — some abstract shapes, active widgets on-screen, and shortcuts and information in easy sight when they’re needed. Here’s how he set it up.


The Ethereal Desktop

Flickr user Ric AAP put this wistful, mysterious desktop together that blends a little modern art and some simple skins to make something interesting and really unique. If you like the look, here’s how to get the same effect on your desktop.


The Martian Dual-Monitor Desktop

Flickr user Orbmiser put together this dual monitor desktop in Windows using a great-looking wallpaper taken by NASA’s MSL Curiosity, some smart use of virtual desktops, and a few desktop widgets. Here’s what you need to replicate the same look.


The Material Design Desktop

We recently featured a desktop by our friend Sanjeev, but his latest one is too good not to highlight as well. He customised his Mac to look very much like the kind of design you’d get in Android Lollipop or Android M. Here’s how he did it.


The Lunar Outpost Dual-Monitor Desktop

Lifehacker reader hehe13 submitted this good looking dual-monitor desktop to our Desktop Showcase a while back, and since we haven’t done a dual-monitor setup in a while, it was about time. Here’s what he used to set it up.


The Polygonal Desktop

Lifehacker reader Pushkar submitted this good-looking desktop, and we love the look of it. Useful as a second screen or when it’s time to work, here’s how he set it up.


The Chromebook Yosemite Desktop

Paul’s desktop might look like it’s a Mac, but it’s actually running on his Chromebook Pixel. With a little customisation and some new icons, he’s made it his own, and it looks great. Here’s how he tweaked it.


The Neo Desktop

Flickr user Sanjeev put this desktop together on his Mac to show off how useful GeekTool can be. He’s right — it’s super useful and we’re impressed. Here’s how he set it up, and how you can too.


The Modern Desktop

Flickr user Greg put this desktop together using Windows 7. It combines some things we like about the flat design in Windows 8 with a little depth elsewhere and some well-placed, very useful widgets. Here’s how he set it up.
